Verdict

Silver Sycamore is making good progress and made all to score over the trip at Leopardstown. She can improve again but faces stronger opposition here including the Ballydoyle pair VAULT and East Meets West. The latter has a victory over the course to his credit but it's the former, who has been running at a much higher level since his Galway nursery victory, who gets the vote. Buffalo Billy looked a very nice type when beating Absolute Crackers at Tipperary while Jemima's Pearl won easily here in August though she's held by Vault on earlier form. Seanie needed his opening run behind Buffalo Billy and still looked in need of experience despite scoring readily at Fairyhouse.
